Officials in France say a Muslim woman can’t use her local swimming pool while dressed in a “burquini,” a head-to-toe swimsuit that adheres to Islamic standards.
Skimpy swimsuits are fine for the French, but The Buzz thinks the burquini — and whatever a similar body-covering bathing costume for men would be called — is a great idea that we Angry Burger-chomping Americans should adopt.

That’s got to be the ultimate unfunded mandate.
